Situational Awareness in Mining Vehicles

Safety is paramount in mining – and visibility is limited because of blind spots all around the machines. The risk can be heightened by bad weather, large amounts of dust and dirt, or the dark. Situational Awareness in Mining Vehicles is crucial in providing a safe work-zone for mining operators. The system provides vehicle operators with 360-degree view improving the all-round vision of the operator. Operators can see where other vehicles are through a video display.
